OOLONG CRÈME

signature blend oolong tea

This signature oolong from the Wuyi Mountains in China is said to have come about when the moon fell in love with a comet. The comet passed her by, as comets will do. The moon cried milky tears which chilled the tea fields, withering the leaves and giving them a delicate creaminess.

This rich oolong tea is rolled into semi-balled form and opens into a beautiful long leaf when steeped.

When steeped as an iced tea, it very simply transforms into a remarkably refreshing thirst-quencher.

  • Tea Profile Golden yellow liquor, medium-bodied and creamy with a rich and lengthy linger.

  • Taste and Strength Delightfully creamy and refreshing.

  • When To Drink Delightful in the afternoon or evening.

  • Steeping Instructions Steep 1 teaspoon per 12 ounces of less than boiling water for 3-4 minutes, depending on taste.

    This oolong tea takes exceptionally well to multiple infusions, providing for unique nuances in flavour each time.
